Kaminsky to discuss DNS flaw at Black Hat sponsored webcast

The Black Hat group on Twitter provided a message today alerting people to a webcast to be put on by Dan Kaminsky on the DNS vulnerabilities that I’ve heavily covered as follows:

The story has also received extensive coverage over at Securosis, where Rich Mogull has provided a podcast on the subject. The Black Hat webcast details are listed below, including the registration information:

Registration Now Open for BH Webcast number 2 With Dan Kaminsky

It’s all over the news: Dan Kaminsky found a major, fundamental flaw in DNS that renders practically any name server vulnerable. He’ll be speaking in depth on this discovery in August at BH USA, but he’s agreed to discuss it a few weeks early. Get your best questions ready - the webcast will be live Thursday, July 24 at 1pm PT/4pm ET.

Join Dan Kaminsky, director of penetration testing for IOactive; Jerry Dixon, former director of the National Cyber Security Division at DHS; and other experts to discuss the largest synchronized security update in the history of the Internet. Dan will tell the story behind the discovery, and the process of creating and deploying the fix.

I’ll be there, as it’s always interesting and entertaining to hear Dan talk. Also, you should note that Dan’s talk at Black Hat is followed up by my talk with Heasman and Rob Carter in the exact same room. Might I suggest you just hang out and see our devastating talk as well? With a title like “The Internet is Broken“, you can imagine we have a lot of interesting stuff to deliver. Shameless plug, I know, but we’ll make it worth your while.
